Han B and Han-Eco B rear-mountable interfaces allow trouble-free data transmission. Han B/EMC Rear-Fit interfaces feature simplified handling to speed the processing of equipping control cabinets for robotics and automation systems.

Han industrial connectors are suitable for environments that require simple installation yet place high demands on component robustness. Until now, installing control cabinet interfaces first required cables to be routed through a cutout in the outer panel. Assembling the inserts then took place outside the control cabinet.

New Han solutions include prefabricated inserts that can be snapped directly into the bulkhead housing from inside the control cabinet.

Contact inserts are in a plastic mounting frame that snaps securely into the rear-fit mounted housing made of aluminum and, if necessary, the frame is easy to disassemble. The attachment of the PE connection to the metal housing is structurally ensured. To achieve an IP65/66 degree of protection to and to protect against UV radiation and ozone emissions, a flange rubber seal runs the whole way inside the rear-fit mounted housing.

The rear-fit option makes the assembly of prefabricated units more efficient. Connections for control cabinets and machine modules can largely be pre-assembled separately.

The new Han rear-mount connectors are compatible with previous connector generations. All contact inserts and modules from the Han line can be used without restriction in the new rear-fit mounted housings.
